Four Corners Recycling 
As many Mancos residents are aware the recycling bins have been overflowing at regular intervals this summer. This is great news, it means that Mancos residents are recycling. In fact, the Mancos bins have been seeing more action than any other Four Corners Recycling Initiative community drop-off sites. However, this has led to some issues; recyclers are leaving recyclables outside of the bins when they are full which causes blowing trash and a big clean-up problem for residents and city employees, and on multiple occasions the bins have been contaminated which causes the whole bin to be trashed at an expense to Four Corners Recycling. Four Corners Recycling would like to ask all those who recycle, to do so thoughtfully, so that there is limited contamination, and to not leave recyclables outside of the bins if they are full. These measures will help ensure that this free public drop off site remains available to the public. Additionally, Four Corners Recycling would like to thank the Mancos School District for funding additional bin pulls to help accommodate the high level of recycling. Unfortunately, due to the contamination, overflow, and additional bin pulls required earlier this year, Four Corners Recycling is $1280.00 short of the required funds to keep the bins in place until the state funded rebates are awarded in October. Thus, Four Corners Recycling is asking the business community, and all those who utilize these recycling services, to chip in and help us reach this $1280.00 funding goal. Checks can be mailed to PO Box 1538, Cortez CO, 81321. Thank you so much for your participation and generosity.
